Scout Security

Scout’s mission is to provide simple, modern and affordable home security systems to help keep your family and possessions safe. Despite only being in the home security industry since 2013, Scout makes up for its lack of experience with simple, flexible security solutions that provide peace of mind.

What Sets Scout Home Security Apart?

One unique feature you’ll find with Scout is the RFID door panels. These door panels allow you to arm and disarm your system at the swipe of a sticker. You can easily add an RFID sticker to an ordinary object to help make arming and disarming more discreet. Scout also boasts the ability to use several smart devices with its security systems. 

The provider’s security systems are called “packs,” ranging from $229 to $549. You also have the option of building your own system personalized to your home security needs. Scout offers 24/7 professional monitoring for $20 per month and a self-monitoring plan with unlimited notifications for $10 per month.

Pros

  • No contract required
  • Unique RFID door panel for arming and disarming
  • Numerous home automation integration capabilities
